Do you mean S-Video vs. RGB? S-Vhs is just Super VHS, a higher quality VHS cassette. Has nothing to do with output of video quality. You can still watch a S-VHS tape out an RF adapter and that would look really bad, or out an S-Video cable and would look a lot better.

So, if you meant S-Video vs RGB, RGB is definately a lot better. Just hard to find a TV with RGB inputs, usually those are for monitors.

In my experience, loads of TVs have RGB on them... if you're in Europe! It's usually only AV1 though. RGB-enabled sockets will have three dots in the scart logo.

Whilst RGB is definitely better than S-Video in terms of picture quality, I find the difference only slight. Much smaller than the difference between S-Video and RF, for example. It might be worth bearing this in mind if you use an AV amp for input switching and the amp only has S-Video ports.
